Penn State Scandal: CEO Of Jerry Sandusky's Second Mile Charity Resigns

The Penn State scandal continues to ripple through all the lives of those connected to it. Anyone associated with either Jerry Sandusky or the Penn State football team seems to be on shaky ground. The latest person to resign, according to Sara Ganim, is Jack Raykovitz, the CEO of Jerry Sandusky's charitable organization.

Raykovitz was part of the Second Mile charity. The exact extent of Second Mile's knowledge of his indiscretions are unknown, but it did prevent Sandusky from making any contact with children at charitable functions starting in 2008. According to this article also by John Schmitz of the Post-Gazette, that was not the first the charity knew of Sandusky's dealings with children.

State College attorney Wendell V. Courtney was apprised of the investigation in 1998 because he was then counsel for Penn State and for The Second Mile. He has not responded to interview requests. That investigation, by university police, was closed when the Centre County district attorney's office decided not to file charges.
